Becky from Sin City

In Sin City, Becky (played by Alexis Bledel) is a working girl in Old Town. She has just started working the street and is new to the game. We find out she has mostly been doing sex work to support her mom. Becky’s downfall is caring about her own well being more than the well of others. Her naive nature also allows her to be manipulated by the mobsters. She ends up making a deal with a Wallenquist for her mother’s protection in exchange for the lives of Gail, another working girl, and Dwight McCarthy an affiliate. She confesses to be a traitor and her justice is later served by the other girls. Becky dresses in almost all leather with a light pink corset like top. Her most notable style choice is her heavy jewelry with layered crosses.

Hiyori Iki from Noragami

The life of Hiyori Iki (Bryn Apprill / Maaya Uchida) first intertwined with Yato’s and Yukine’s when she unwittingly “saved” Yato from being hit by a passing bus. Now, whenever she falls asleep, her soul can leave her body in the form of a half-Phantom with a pink “lifeline” tail. This state won’t last forever, but Hiyori uses the time she has to defend her supernatural friends from matters going on way over her head.

This costume guide combines elements from two Hiyori outfits: her school dress and her outerwear — the latter of which is much easier to recreate from items you’ll likely find in your own closet.

Lucas Lee from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Lucas Lee is an antagonist in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He is a famous action-movie actor with several doppelgänger stunt doubles. More notably, he is one of the seven evil exes who Scott Pilgrim must defeat to be with Ramona Flowers.

Loki

Loki

Loki is a recurring antagonist from the Marvel movies and comic books. His persona was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, but he originates from Norse mythology as the god of trickery and mischief. He is the adoptive son of Odin and brother of Thor. In contrast to his brother’s outgoing personality, Loki is reserved, yet he is also sly and deceitful. He usurps power for his personal gain to rule over Earth, driven by spite and jealousy of his father’s favoritism for Thor. He made his cinematic debut in Thor (2011), where he was portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.

Smile from Words Bubbling Up Like Cider

Smiles wears a mask to hide her front teeth and braces. She is a popular video star that talks about seeking fitness. One day, an incident sparks her friendship with a quiet boy named Cherry. Smile connects with Cherry the way she can’t with others in Words Bubbling Up Like Cider (Cider no You ni Kotoba ga Wakiagaru).

mina mongoose from sonic

Mina Mongoose from Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie)

Mina Mongoose is a character from the Archi Comics Sonic the Hedgehog series.  Mina is one of three girls who vie for Sonic‘s affections throughout the series.  Mina is also a successful singer, and her nickname “Songoose” references that.  Finding purple and green striped clothing to match Mina’s exactly might be difficult, but if you stick with the green and purple color scheme while choosing pieces with a similar silhouette, you’ll be good to go!  If the iridescent platform boots are too high (or too highly-priced), a pair of green shoes to match your arm warmers could easily be used instead.

Kugaha from Noragami

Kugaha from Noragami

Kugaha was one of Bishamon’s many shinki (soul-weapons), and used his presence in the immense crowd that is her collection to take her down from the inside! Not even Bishamon’s Blessed Shinki, Kazuma, caught on until it was almost too late. Kugaha’s function in Bisha’s “family” of lost souls was that of doctor/healer; he had an arsenal of medicines and poisons to keep his mistress under his control.

Kugaha’s costume is surprisingly easy to assemble using very simple garments. The most complicated part, perhaps, is his headband; it can be recreated using the last three items on this list.

morbius comics character

Morbius

Morbius the Living Vampire is a villain in the Marvel comics, specifically the antagonist of Spider-Man. Once known as Dr. Michael Morbius, he obtained vampiric abilities after a biochemical experiment went wrong. It was supposed to cure his rare blood disease, but instead it turned him into a psuedo-vampire with a craving for human blood. His other abilities include flight, hypnosis, and accelerated healing. Jared Leto is slated to play the role in his upcoming live-action movie. Sew or glue on the red ribbon to create the trim on the neckline. Use a pair of scissors to cut down the center of the bodysuit as well as to create the pointed edges of the cape.

Iruma from Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-Kun

Iruma from Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-Kun

Iruma Suzuki (Laura Stahl / Ayumu Murase) walks a fine line between being an adorable sweetheart and the consummate doormat. He’ll do anything to help a person in want or need, if they do so much as say “please.” So when the demon Lord Sullivan asks him to become his adopted grandson (and Iruma’s extremely irresponsible parents don’t object), naturally, young Iruma couldn’t refuse! Plot twist: Sullivan is also the principal of the underworld’s local demon school, where human-eating demons with no concept of friendship will have their first “taste” of human companionship … if they can figure Iruma out!
